Ellis Dee had nothing to do with this release. Not as far as I know anyway. It was Chris Paul who championed the rave night 'Trax' and 'Mars' at Camden Palace 1988-1991 and of Orange club fame 1991 onwards. Held at the Camden Palace, The Rocket (Lower Holloway), Astoria and Hippodrome etc in London.

This has to be one of the best 91 hardcore tunes without a shadow of a doubt. its mellow and aggressive at the same time. Ellis Dee was by far one of the best DJ Producers in the scene.

A true standard for the piano-hardcore Techno era, "Different Strokes" joins together amazing samples, beats and synth lines. The synth pads on the beginning are taken from "Pacific" by 808 State and re-worked, but you can still figure out it was taken from there; the synthesizer lines goes from these atmospheric ones to the amazing piano melodies of "Salsa House" (1989) by Richie Rich, and also a fragment of the hoover synths from the Techno Anthem 'Second Phase - Mentasm' (1991) - both on the drop out of "Different Strokes".
The vocal samples are from 'Whatever Makes You Happy' (1990) by Marshall Jefferson & Ten City.
